Benefits of An Evaporative Humidifier

Bloody noses from dry sinuses, annoying shocks from metal doorknobs, dust and pollen allergy symptoms, and even high heating bills are all issues that an evaporative humidifier can help remedy. Evaporative humidifiers are box-shaped units that feature a large basin of water with a wick filter that draws water from the basin. A fan blows air across the filter, causing the water to evaporate and circulate throughout the air, increasing the room’s humidity while removing impurities such as pollen and dust.

These devices range from smaller units that can boost the humidity in a bedroom or living area to whole-home units that can cover 4,000 square feet or more. Evaporative humidifier models include humidistats that sense the conditions in the room to control the humidity output.

When used correctly, an evaporative humidifier has a wide range of benefits, from easing cold and allergy symptoms to extending the life of your home’s furnishings. 

Evaporative humidifiers:

Provide comfort in dry weather

Low humidity can lead to a variety of ailments, from dry sinuses to dry skin. Low humidity also can exacerbate allergy and cold symptoms. A humidifier alleviates those problems by adding soothing moisture to the air.

Decrease static electricity in the home

Static electricity that causes clingy clothing and uncomfortable shocks when touching metal doorknobs thrives in a dry environment. By adding moisture to the air, evaporative humidifiers help eliminate static electricity.

Extend the life of furnishings

Wood, paint, leather, and other materials benefit from humidity levels that range between 40 percent and 60 percent. Dry conditions can shorten the lives of furnishing and wall coverings, causing paint to peel, wood to dry out, and leather to crack.

Filter out dust and pollen

An evaporative humidifier helps filter dust and pollen from the air, which can help alleviate allergy symptoms.

Promote plant growth

Plants love a humid environment. By adding humidity to the air, an evaporative humidifier can help improve the health of a home’s flora as well as its fauna.
